Final Mock Draft Monitor: Pencils Down, Picks Are In

042519_MockDraftMonitor

This is it, our final mock draft monitor prior to the NFL Draft.

Pundits have weighed in with their decisions before the names are called Thursday night in Nashville. The most popular choice for the Ravens at No. 22 is Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown.

We’ll see if Baltimore goes Hollywood. But here’s a rundown on the latest projections, and there are plenty of names to choose from:

Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network
C Elgton Jenkins, Mississippi State
Senior; 6-foot-4, 310 pounds
“I believe the Ravens will try to trade back and recoup the 2019 second-round pick they gave up in the trade to land Lamar Jackson last year. It's easy to envision Baltimore continuing to reinforce the O-line with a player like Jenkins.”

Charles Davis, NFL Network
WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma
_Junior; 5-foot-9, 166 pounds; 75 catches, 1,318 yards, 10 touchdowns
_“Head Coach John Harbaugh wants a ‘tough guy’ at WR. He won’t mind a blazer who will bring a little ‘Hollywood’ to ‘Charm City.’”

C-G Erik McCoy, Texas A&M

Junior; 6-foot-4, 303 pounds

“I expect the Ravens to trade down, but their biggest hole is at the interior offensive line. I have picked McCoy to the Ravens in previous mocks, and I’ll stick with it.”

C-G Erik McCoy, Texas A&M

"The Ravens will look to trade out of this pick, but they could also use an upgrade at left guard or center in helping protect mobile second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson. McCoy has excellent awareness and athleticism.”

John Clayton, The Washington Post
C Garrett Bradbury, N.C. State
Senior; 6-foot-3, 306 pounds
“The Ravens are a run-first team with Lamar Jackson at quarterback, and Bradbury, the fastest-rising blocker in the draft, would be a valuable addition. Baltimore also needs a big wide receiver who can block and might consider one here or in the third round.”

Ryan Wilson, CBS Sports*
WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

“Brown, who has blazing speed with the lateral quickness to match, has drawn comparisons to Tyreek Hill and DeSean Jackson. He also has the ability to put his foot in the ground and get in and out of cuts leaving defensive backs in a heap. Brown lacks strength as a blocker but is willing to do the job. He's great in the screen game, catches the ball cleanly, and is able to make defenders miss in small areas. A home-run hitter who suffered a Lisfranc injury that could scare off some teams, but the expectation is that he'll be ready by training camp. If the Ravens truly want their offense to evolve under Lamar Jackson, Brown's field-stretching ability is a good place to start.”

Chris Trapasso, CBS Sports*
OL Cody Ford, Oklahoma
*
Junior; 6-foot-4, 329 pounds
“The Ravens wants to overwhelm teams with an old-school running attack in a new-school passing area. Ford would add more power to an already solid offensive line.”

Will Brinson, CBS Sports
WR Parris Campbell, Ohio State
Senior; 6-foot-0,_ 205 pounds; 90 catches, 1,063 yards, 12 touchdowns_
“Another team that could trade down, but instead they decide to grab a wide receiver who is capable of playing all over the field and exploding for big gains.”

Evan Silva, Yahoo! Sports
WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

“Baltimore’s run-dominant offense can’t exist without at least some vertical-passing threat, and their wideout depth chart is currently topped by Willie SneadChris Moore, and Jordan Lasley. Brown served as Baker Mayfield, then Kyler Murray’s go-to target with the Sooners, averaging 18.3 career yards per catch and leading all of Division I in receptions of 50-plus yards (14) over the past two seasons.”

Dan Kadar, SB Nation
WR D.K. Metcalf, Ole Miss
Sophomore; 6-foot-3, 228 pounds; 26 catches, 569 yards, five touchdowns

“The Ravens are a team that could roll the dice on Metcalf. It’s easy to point out his flaws, but for the Ravens he can help open up the passing offense.”

Danny Kelly, The Ringer
WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma
“The Ravens need to bolster their defensive line, but their receiver depth chart is absolutely barren. Fortunately, they get their pick of the litter at that position here and go with a game-changing talent in Brown. The Sooner has take-the-top-off-a-defense-type speed that will give opposing coordinators pause about dropping eight men in the box to stop Baltimore’s fearsome run game. Brown gives Lamar Jackson a much-needed playmaker on deep throws, screens, and quick slants over the middle, and may even help the run game because of the way he tilts the defense in his direction.”

Steve Palazzolo, Pro Football Focus
EDGE Chase Winovich, Michigan
_Senior; 6-foot-3, 256 pounds; 69 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, 5 sacks
_“Talent is needed in the Baltimore front-7 and Winovich is a productive, under-the-radar talent who put up two straight years of 90-plus PFF grades. He can win with burst, bend or his hands off the edge, making him one of the best all-around defensive players in the draft.”

Jonas Shaffer, The Baltimore Sun
WR D.K. Metcalf, Ole Miss
“The polarizing prospect has fallen down draft boards in recent weeks, and he could be there for the taking at No. 22 — or maybe even near the start of the second round. The Ravens have targets for quarterback Lamar Jackson in their short- and intermediate-passing game. What they need is a game-breaking wide receiver, and the fully realized version of Metcalf is the closest thing to that in the draft. If team officials believe his two season-ending injuries in college are not predictive of any future troubles, it will be hard to pass on the 6-foot-3, 228-pound speedster.”

WR N’Keal Harry, Arizona State

Junior; 6-foot-2, 228 pounds; 73 catches, 1088 yards, nine touchdowns

“A year ago they used their first pick to draft their most glaring need at the time - tight end. I could see first-time GM Eric DeCosta doing the same here. They need pass rush (but could sign veteran Ziggy Ansah who is visiting with the team) and interior offensive line help, too, but could use their third-picks to move up to address that. They may have the weakest receiver room in the NFL. This is an immediate boost of size, speed, and skill. Marquise Brown or D.K. Metcalf would fit the bill as well, but I’m rolling the dice on Harry.”

G Chris Lindstrom, Boston College

Senior; 6-foot-4, 308 pounds

“The Baltimore Ravens missed out on Garrett Bradbury here but landed the best offensive guard in the class in Lindstrom. With Marshal Yanda, who turns 35 in September nearing the end of his career, Lindstrom is the perfect pick to start opposite him now and eventually take his place. He’s incredibly mobile while working to the second level and has excellent zone-blocking angles from the snap. As the Ravens offense evolves with Lamar Jackson at quarterback, a guard who can pull and move the pocket is among the most valuable positions a team can add.”

WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

“The Ravens are another team I expect to trade down and possibly all the way out of the first round. But if they stay at No. 22, Brown has the explosive speed that will give Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore offense another weapon for defenses to worry about.”
